Amazentis CEO explains Mitopure’s unique approach – optimising mitochondrial function by stimulating mitophagy.
Chris Rinsch, PhD, is the CEO and Co-Founder of Amazentis, an innovative life science company dedicated to employing breakthrough research and clinical science to bring advanced therapeutic nutrition products to life. Having covered research that shows Mitopure, Amazentis’ highly pure urolithin A supplement appears to boost mitochondria and muscle health, we were keen to find out more about the company and its foundation and direction.
Longevity.Technology: Urolithin A is a powerful postbiotic synthesised by the gut microbiome from polyphenolic compounds in pomegranates, berries and nuts. However, even though urolithin A can have a beneficial effect on mitochondrial function which results in the slowing of certain aging processes and an improvement in muscle recovery, nearly two-thirds of us are not able to manufacture enough of it due to the composition of our microbiome. In order to help everyone produce enough urolithin A, regardless of what microbiota are in their gut, Amazentis has developed a purified form of urolithin A called Mitopure, which they market as the supplement Timeline.
Check out our fascinating interview with Chris Rinsch, in which we find out more about how Amazentis is taking nutrition to the next level by using all the tools of modern biology and why urolithin A is a gamechanger for human health.

The benefits of Mitopure urolithin A supplement
After four weeks of taking urolithin A, we saw an improvement in the mitochondrial gene signature … an overall systemic improvement in mitochondria. Following a two month period of taking Mitopure, we saw an improvement in muscle function, particularly in muscle endurance, that was statistically significant.
The rise of the postbiotic
Inside your gut you have these probiotics, these bacteria, that transform the ellagitannins from pomegranates into urolithin A, making urolithin A a postbiotic. Not everyone’s microbiome can make this conversion, so Mitopure, our propietary urolithin A, gives you the right dose of urolithin A – equivalent to drinking 6 glasses of pomegranate juice, whether you’re a converter or not.
How Amazentis’ urolithin A supplement works
By stimulating the process of mitophagy, we’re able to clean up damaged mitochondria and keep the pool of mitochondria inside our cells in a real optimum form.
The biological activity of urolithin A is very potent in the cells, and we see this as something that would be a great complement to people’s diets to help them manage their muscle and cellular function as they age, at any point in their lives. We hear from our customers, including professional athletes, that they are feeling the benefits of Mitopure.
